Yes, it’s happened again. UCLA did some housecleaning on its podcast website, and erased all courses prior to fall quarter 2011. That means some great content has faded into the ether, but it’s also a timely reminder to download online courses before they disappear.
And it also gives me another chance to plug one of my all-time favorite courses, UCLA psychologist Thomas Bradbury’s Close Relationships (website). My initial review of this course was back in 2010, but thankfully there is a 2012 version of the course still online. Bradbury does his own research on intimate relationships, what makes them survive and what makes them fall apart. The course is full of great insights, and some entertaining video clips as well.
